Description
    TECHNICAL FIELD
  • [0001]
    The present invention relates to a bottle for fluid products, particularly pharmaceutical, medicinal and cosmetic products.
  • BACKGROUND ART
  • [0002]
    Plastic bottles are known and are used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries to package one or more doses of fluid, liquid or pasty products and are substantially constituted by a product containment body that is extended at one end by a neck, at the top of which there is a mouth for dispensing the product; the dispensing mouth is closed by a tearable membrane.
  • [0003]
    The end of the containment body that lies opposite the neck is open, in order to allow, during bottle packaging, the introduction of the product in the containment body, after which the end is closed for example by welding.
  • [0004]
    A cap is fitted on the neck, and a membrane piercing member protrudes from the top of the cap toward the inside of the cap.
  • [0005]
    A retention ring is formed on the inner lateral surface of the cap and in the closed configuration for packaging the bottle is engaged by snap action in a corresponding annular groove formed on the lateral outer surface of the neck, so as to retain the piercing member at a higher level than the membrane that closes the dispensing mouth.
  • [0006]
    Moreover, the containment body is provided with two grip tabs, which protrude from its outer lateral surface so that they are diametrically mutually opposite.
  • [0007]
    Conventional bottles can be produced as individual units or can be interconnected in series (packs); in this last case, the grip tabs of the containment bodies of two successive bottles are mutually temporarily joined along prescoring lines.
  • [0008]
    At the time of use, the cap is fitted further onto the neck of the containment body until the retaining ring disengages from the corresponding groove and the piercing member tears the membrane, opening the dispensing mouth, after which the cap is removed from the neck in order to allow dispensing of the product.
  • [0009]
    These known bottles are not free from drawbacks, including the fact that they do not indicate clearly and in an immediately detectable manner whether they have been tampered with and/or already opened a first time, even unintentionally, and they do not ensure the integrity and sterility of the product packaged therein.
  • [0010]
    The bottles, handled or stored in containers (drawers, cabinets, makeup bags, et cetera), may in fact be subjected to impacts that push their cap onto the neck until the piercing member tears the membrane before the product is actually used, since the obstacle provided by the coupling between the retention ring and the corresponding annular groove is often insufficient to contrast such impacts.
  • DISCLOSURE OF THE INVENTION
  • [0011]
    The aim of the present invention is to eliminate the drawbacks noted above of known bottles, by providing a bottle for fluid products, particularly pharmaceutical, medicinal and cosmetic products, that allows to indicate clearly and in an immediately detectable manner any tampering and/or previous first opening, even if performed unintentionally, and ensures the integrity and sterility of the product packaged therein.
  • [0012]
    Within this aim, an object of the present invention is to provide a bottle that is simple, relatively easy to provide in practice, safe in use, effective in operation, and has a relatively low cost.
  • [0013]
    This aim and this and other objects that will become better apparent hereinafter are achieved by the present bottle for fluid products, particularly pharmaceutical, medicinal and cosmetic products, characterized in that it comprises a body for containing a fluid product, particularly a pharmaceutical, medicinal or cosmetic product, a mouth for dispensing said product that is formed at one end of said containment body, a closure element associated detachably with said dispensing mouth, a cap associated with said end of the containment body, an element for removing said closure element that is formed inside said cap, at least one grip tab that protrudes from the outer lateral surface of said containment body, and at least one sealing tab, which is interposed between said cap and said grip tab and is associated, so that it can be removed by tearing, with at least one among said containment body, said grip tab and said cap, at respective first weakened regions.

    FIG. 7 is a schematic enlarged-scale sectional view of a detail of a bottle of FIG. 5.
  • WAYS OF CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION
  • [0022]
    With reference to the figures, the reference numeral 1 generally designates a bottle for fluid products, particularly pharmaceutical, medicinal and cosmetic products.
  • [0023]
    The bottle 1 can be obtained for example by molding plastic material.
  • [0024]
    The bottle 1 comprises a product containment body 2, which is extended, at one end, by means of a neck 3, at the top of which there is a mouth 4 for dispensing the product.
  • [0025]
    A closure element 5 is detachably associated with the mouth 4; a cap 6 is fitted at least partially over the neck 3, and an element 7 for removing the closure element 5 is formed inside the cap 6.
  • [0026]
    At least one and preferably two grip tabs 8 protrude from the outer lateral surface of the body 2 so that they are mutually diametrically opposite, and at least one and preferably two sealing tabs 9 are interposed between the grip tabs 8 and the cap 6 and are associated, so that they can be removed by tearing, with the body 2, proximate to the neck 3, and/or with the grip tabs 8 and/or with the base of the cap 6, at respective first weakened regions 10.
  • [0027]
    The sealing tabs 9 are superimposed and aligned with the grip tabs 8, with which they are substantially co-planar.
  • [0028]
    The neck 3 comprises an end portion 3 a, on which the cap 6 is fitted in the closed packaging configuration of the bottle 1, and a base portion 3 b, which is interposed between the body 2 and the end portion 3 a, at which there is at least one portion of the sealing tabs 9.
  • [0029]
    Means 11 for temporarily retaining the cap 6 in a configuration in which there is no interference between the removal element 7 and the closure element 5 when the bottle 1 is in the closed packaging configuration are provided; in this configuration, said means are suitable to hinder the further intentional and accidental approach and/or spacing of the cap 6 and of the body 2, preserving the integrity of the closure element 5 and the seal of the mouth 4.
  • [0030]
    The temporary retention means 11 can comprise, for example, an abutment surface 12, which is formed at the base of the cap 6 and is suitable to rest on a corresponding abutment surface 13 formed on the upper edge of the sealing tabs 9.
  • [0031]
    Moreover, the temporary retention means 11 may comprise, for example, two annular retention rings 14 and 15, which are suitable to engage each other and protrude respectively at the base of the inner lateral surface of the cap 6 and from the outer lateral surface of the body 2, particularly of the neck 3.
  • [0032]
    The bottle 1 can be produced as an individual unit or can be interconnected in series S (packs) to other identical bottles 1; in this last case, the grip tabs 8 of each bottle 1 that is intermediate within the series S are associated, along second weakened regions 16, with the grip tabs 8 of the bodies 2 of the other two bottles 1 arranged adjacent thereto, while the grip tabs 8 of the end bottles 1 of the series S that are external to the series S end with an enlarged portion 17.
  • [0033]
    Conveniently, again if the bottle 1 is produced in series S, the cap 6 can be associated, along third weakened regions 18, with the caps 6 of the bottles 1 that are adjacent thereto.
  • [0034]
    Moreover, the cap 6 can be provided with an actuation tool 19 that is rigidly coupled thereto; in this case, the third weakened regions 18 are formed between the actuation tools 19 of the caps 6 of two adjacent bottles 1.
  • [0035]
    At the end of the body 2 that lies opposite the neck 3 there is an opening 20 through which the product is introduced in the body 2 during the packaging of the bottle 1; once filling has occurred, the opening 20 is closed for example by welding its lips.
  • [0036]
    In the first embodiment of the bottle 1, shown in FIGS. 1 to 4, the closure element 5 is constituted by a plug 21, which is associated, along fourth weakened regions 22, with the perimetric rim of the mouth 4, while the removal element 7 is constituted by a complementary receptacle 23 for containing the plug 21 formed at the top 24 of the cap 6; means for the mutual coupling of the plug 21 and the receptacle 23 are provided.
  • [0037]
    The receptacle 23 has a profile that is identical to the profile of the plug 21.
  • [0038]
    The means for mutually coupling the plug 21 and the receptacle 23 can comprise, for example, a toroidal ring 25, which protrudes from the outer lateral surface of the plug 21, and a corresponding annular groove 26, which is formed at the receptacle 23, the ring and the groove preventing axial sliding between the plug 21 and the receptacle 23 once the former has engaged within the latter.
  • [0039]
    Moreover, the means for mutually coupling the plug 21 and the receptacle 23 can comprise a plurality of knurlings 27, which are formed longitudinally on the outer lateral surface of the plug 21 and are suitable to mate with corresponding knurlings 28 formed longitudinally on the inner lateral surface of the receptacle 23, in order to prevent relative rotation between the plug 21 and the receptacle 23 once the former has engaged within the latter.
  • [0040]
    The actuation tool 19 is constituted by a band 29, which is wrapped substantially like a ring around the cap 6, is rigidly coupled to its base, and forms a cambered grip.
  • [0041]
    In the second embodiment of the bottle 1, shown in FIGS. 5 to 7, the closure element 5 is constituted by a tearable membrane 30, which is rigidly coupled to the perimetric rim of the mouth 4, while the removal element 7 is constituted by a piercing member 31 that protrudes from the top 24 of the cap 6 inside it.
  • [0042]
    The membrane 30 can be constituted, for example, by a disk made of a material that is formed monolithically with respect to the body 2 during the molding of said body.
  • [0043]
    There are also means for fixing the cap 6 to the body 2, which are for example of the threaded type and comprise a screw 32 formed on the outer lateral surface of the body 2, particularly of the neck 3, and a corresponding female thread 33 formed on the inner lateral surface of the cap 6.
  • [0044]
    Conveniently, the mouth 4 is shaped like a frustum that diverges from the inside toward the outside of the body 2.
  • [0045]
    The actuation tool 19 is constituted by two actuation tabs 34, which are mutually diametrically opposite and protrude from the outer lateral surface of the cap 6.
  • [0046]
    Advantageously, the actuation tabs 34 are aligned with the sealing tabs 9 and with the grip tabs 8 and are substantially co-planar therewith.
  • [0047]
    The first weakened regions 10, the second weakened regions 16, the third weakened regions 18 and the fourth weakened regions 22 can be constituted for example by prescoring lines, by tearable bridges, by reduced transverse cross-sections, or the like.
  • [0048]
    The operation of the invention is as follows.
  • [0049]
    The bottle 1 assumes a closed packaging configuration, in which the opening 20 of the body 2, filled with product, is closed, the mouth 4 is closed by the closure element 5, the cap 6 is fitted on the end portion 3 a of the neck 3 up to a level that avoids interference between the removal element 7 and the closure element 5, and the sealing tabs 9 are associated with the body 2 (base portion 3 b of the neck 3) and/or with the grip tabs 8 and/or with the cap 6.
  • [0050]
    The bottle 1 can be produced and packaged as an individual unit or in a series S.
  • [0051]
    At the time of use, after possibly separating the bottle 1 from the series S, it is first of all necessary to remove the sealing tabs 9 by tearing, so as to allow to fit at least partially the cap 6 on the base portion 3 b of the neck 3; by doing so, the removal element 7 interferes with the closure element 5, opening the mouth 4.
  • [0052]
    Finally, in order to dispense the product it is necessary to remove the cap 6, clearing the open mouth 4; when use is over, it is possible to close the body 2 by means of the cap 6.
  • [0053]
    At the time of use of the bottle 1 in its first embodiment, the cap 6 is fitted onto the base portion 3 b by applying thereto a thrusting action toward the body 2; during the axial sliding imparted to the cap 6, the plug 21 is inserted by interlocking in the receptacle 23 and is thus rigidly coupled to the cap 6.
  • [0054]
    By gripping the actuation tool 19 and imparting, by means of said tool, a rotation to the cap 6 and therefore also to the plug 21 that is rigidly coupled thereto, the fourth weakened regions 22 are broken: the plug 21 disengages from the mouth 4 and remains rigidly coupled to the cap 6.
  • [0055]
    At the time of use of the bottle 1 in its second embodiment, the cap 6 is fitted onto the base portion 3 b by applying thereto, by means of the actuation tool 19, a rotation as a consequence of which the female thread 33 is screwed onto the screw 32; as the cap 6 is gradually screwed onto the neck 3, the piercing member 31 tears the membrane 30, opening the mouth 4.
  • [0056]
    In practice, it has been found that the described invention achieves the intended aim and object.
  • [0057]
    The presence or absence of the sealing tabs in fact provides a clear indication, and allows immediate detection, of the integrity or prior opening of the bottle according to the invention.
  • [0058]
    Moreover, the sealing tabs prevent, by constituting a hindrance, the fitting of the cap onto the base portion of the neck of the containment body, retaining the removal element in the configuration in which there is no interference with the closure element, ensuring the seal of the dispensing mouth and therefore the integrity and sterility of the product packaged in the bottle.
  • [0059]
    The invention thus conceived is susceptible of numerous modifications and variations, all of which are within the scope of the appended claims.
  • [0060]
    All the details may further be replaced with other technically equivalent ones.
  • [0061]
    In practice, the materials used, as well as the shapes and the dimensions, may be any according to requirements without thereby abandoning the scope of the appended claims.
